Sippy Cups + Glass Blowing = The Indy Supercar of Wine Glasses

The fine people at Revelation are pretty excited about their wine glass. The Revelation website is a pretty epic attempt to capture the magic of this glass. While the introduction loads, the website kindly asks you to turn on your computer speakers. At this point it is clear that something big is going to happen…and then BLAM! What seems to be a naked woman drinking out of one of these Revelation glasses appears. Impressive.

Revelation: Wine Examined

The next slide is of a regal looking gentleman who looks like Martin Sheen playing Anthony Dias Blue in a made-for-tv movie judging a wine using the Revelation glass. Again, impressive.

Revelation: Wine Revealed

The following slide appears to be some engineering diagram of how the Revelation glass works. Apparently the hole in the sip spout introduces air into the wine to bring to life. To confirm this interpretation I call upon my arch-nemesis Steve Heimoff for a second opinion. He tries comparing the setup to a typical bong, at which point I have to point out to Mr. Heimoff that I was born during the Reagan Administration and was certainly not a hippie, and that I had no idea what he was talking about.

Revelation: Be afraid... Be very afraid

The site almost loses me with the diagrams, but it pulls the entire vision together with another naked woman with the headline “Be afraid…Be very afraid”. I don’t know what this means, but I am into it.

Revelation: Performance

After sitting through the entire slideshow six or seven times to get to the slides with the naked women, I finally figure out that I can visit each slide at will, which allows me to confirm that yes, this glass is all about bringing wine to life by introducing air into the wine just before you drink. A clever idea, and one worth checking out.

    I want my “straw” to be one like you’d find in the bottom of a box of Cap’n Crunch cereal, all bendy and twisted and what not.

    But, I’m a bit perplexed as how to actually respond to this lol ..

    Beyond the beautiful women, there is a Maybach and what looks to be a Ferrari F1 race car, enough said.

    If only it had a snap on lid, for my long distance space treks

    What’s even cooler are the cereal bowls with the straws out the side like that. I don’t know about you, but when I drink the milk after I’m done eating my cereal, I always spill it all over myself. Totally practical, and cool too.

    Just imagine the horror on your fellow judges faces when you decide aerate your wine by actually blowing back into the glass. Hilarious.

    Hey, I like the idea of using the straw to aerate, you don’t have to bother with all that swirlling, just BLOW!

    That’s what she said.

    I see there’s more to this glass than the pretty women (although not a bad addition); check out the philosophy page – I learned something.
